If I had to choose, I liked the wide whites.
I think Chris may have said that too?
No idea why cuz they all looked reasonable.
Interested to see what direction you go.

Tried to get them on the car tonight. But, I need to remove the centercaps so I can balance them. The little itty bitty screws dont want to budge and I dont want to strip them. Going to figure out what to do..

I would turn them over and apply heat. Not a lot, but enough to expand the metal, then try unscrewing them.

Good luck.

I think, on the back side, you should apply some heat...
